about this item

This book captures a broad sample of work from around the world, providing those commissioning and delivering health interventions with both inspiration and practical guidance for setting up sports-based public health projects in their own areas. Using a case study approach, the book has an emphasis on the practical realities of delivering public health work balanced with an overview of current theory, evidence and policy. Sport is increasingly featured in the delivery of public health interventions across the globe, from small scale grassroots projects in local communities to health partnerships with major sporting events on the international stage. The role of sport in public health goes far beyond efforts to promote physical activity; with programmes as diverse as chlamydia screening in Australia and post-emergency psycho-social interventions in areas stricken by conflict and natural disasters. ?
